  • develops and exploits the structure of finite-dimensional linear systems.
  • unifies state-space and transfer-function analysis.
  • carefully develops and uses interrelations with state-space descriptions to illuminate both approaches.
  • avoids the development of purely mathematical topics — all mathematical results are used in some significant systems problem.
  • keeps the proofs as simple and direct as possible.
